Post Horn Gallop

Post Horn Gallop
Written by Derek Benfield
Directed by Harry Dunphy
15 – 20 October 1990

A sequel to Wild Goose Chase. In the ancestral home, the nerve-shattered Chester is again menaced by his old enemies, Capone and Wedgwood. In the flower beds, Lord Elrood lurks with his shotgun ready to repel attacks by the butcher’s boy, the postman and other desperate characters. Through the ancestral living-room wander Maggie and Bert, come for two-and-sixpence-worth of gawp and suitably awestruck by the goings-on of the country-house set.
